How many times as editors do you hear from a client, “I just want to record”? As podcast editors we have the unique job to take something that is rough around the edges and make people sound better and elevate their brands. But let’s face it, creating a business as an editor has its high and lows and many lessons to learn.
Like most things in life other people have gone before you and you just need the right friend to help point you in the right direction.
This idea of community support and creating an environment where editors learn and support each other in their own business is what Steve Stewart has created. He has been helping podcasters sound great since 2016 and now leads the largest community of editors along with the Podcast Editors Conference.
